What Do Your Lists Say About You?

More and more, we are a nation of list-makers, from grocery lists, New Year's resolutions, and things to do before we die to DVDs to rent and people we've kissed. In To-Do List (based on the popular blog of the same name, todolistblog.com) Sasha Cagen celebrates the humble to-do list, exploring the ways these scribbled agendas reflect our personalities and passions.

To-Do List is both a celebration of lists and a peek at the lists that others create. Broken down by subjects like "Daily Lists" to "Sex Lists," it's a fascinating collection of lists from everyday people to the well-known:

  • Novelist Nick Hornby's list of desert island discs
  • A therapist's secret fears ("I HATE having to think about clients in relation to my hair or clothes")
  • A shopping list from chef Alice Waters of Chez Panisse
  • A woman's accomplishments before her thirtieth birthday ("Hot air ballooned over the Serengeti," "Danced on a table in Vegas")
  • Qualities one man is looking for in a future wife, including "Chews with her mouth shut" and "Will let me give my first son the middle name of 'Jacob'"
With each list, Cagen offers the story behind it and a prompt for readers to compare notes and take their own stab at a similar list.

Voyeuristic and interactive, To-Do List will show you just how much — and what — your lists say about you.

Synopsis:

Cagen, author of the sleeper hit Quirkyalone, celebrates the humble to-do list, exploring the ways these scribbled agendas reflect idiosyncrasies, personalities, and passions. Included is a fascinating collection of 100 lists from everyday people and the well-known alike.

Just when we thought there was nothing to buy the man who has everything, Sasha Cagen's "To-Do-List" was released. From the ordinary to the amusing, Cagen had us quickly sharing our own to-do lists as we chuckled and read aloud over the family table. Maybe not for everyone's tastes, but a definite buy for any list maker in the family.
